Congratulations to Val Beynon on receiving an award from the Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey for her
service to the community in Surrey. The award comes as recognition for all Val has done in encouraging
music-making and singers through the various choirs she has conducted in Surrey.
The citation on the Lord-Lieutenant’s Award reads:
‘His Majesty’s Lord Lieutenant of Surrey hereby records his gratitude to Valerie Beynon in appreciation of your service to the community in Surrey.’
The award was presented to Val at our weekly rehearsal this Wednesday by Sir Stephen Lamport, the Vice Lord-Lieutenant of Surrey. Val received a standing ovation from all the choir members present and we are all delighted that Val's service and commitment to her choirs over such a long period of time has been recognised in this way.
